The  Shelby  Republican
Thursday, December 12, 1872
          Our good looking German friend, Gus Schwartz, intends taking a trip to the "Fatherland" early next spring, to visit relatives and friends.
The "German Store."
          Gus W. Schwartz, proprietor, has just now the finest display of Ladies new and fashionable Dress Goods to be found.  Mr. Schwartz has made his selections in this line this year with especial care, occupying much more time in the general market buying his goods than usual, so that his customers might be furnished with the very best, the prettiest and the most fashionable of everything.  In this he has succeeded admirably.  His stock in the several other departments is full and complete, and we advise the ladies to go there and make their purchases.
Cheap Goods,
          All we ask is that those in want of Dry Goods, Notions, &c, shall visit the German Dry Goods Store and examine quality and prices before buying elsewhere, and satisfy themselves as to who can sell the cheapest.
